Cambridge Ion Channel Forum

12:00 – 17:30

Milstein Building, MedImmune, Granta Park, CB21 6GH Cambridge
08 May 2018
Acknowledging the importance for scientists to have an open discussion forum, One Nucleus is joining forces with AstraZeneca and Metrion to bring together the 5th Cambridge Ion Channel Forum.


The Cambridge Ion Channel Forum aims to bring together scientists working on ion channel projects across industry and academia. The focus is on open discussion and collaboration, without bias, and includes an opportunity for networking.  

There will also be an opportunity for attendees to present their research at the poster session.

Whilst free to attend, the conference is reserved for scientists and attendance is strictly upon confirmation of a registration request. The organisers reserve the right to refuse any registration.

Please contact Aline, for any further information on registration or submitting a poster abstract.
